10:21 am
understand the challenges that many of those nonprofit face. in particular we had programming money but unfortunately, because of the challenges we had to redirect funded to hire a case manager to help support the needs of the children. i think it's important 3 we make sure that each and every agency that's receives fund from d c wifi is held accountable. especially, if their organizations that are doing the work. the support that's received from a lot of this granted monies helps keep people employed. but my goal is to make sure that the programs are focused on children and i will not sacrifice children over
10:22 am
employment's opportunity. so if a program is not doing what it should be doing then we need to make sure we're supporting those organizations that are. so i'm really excited about this hearing. of course, with the loss of a significant d c wifi funding i want to make sure that the programs that need funding the most and that serve the children in those districts receive what they needed in other words, to be effective. thank you very much >> thank you for being here. why don't we get going with your presentation >> good morning chair and members of the committee. i'm director for the department of families and children. it's my pleasure. i'm joined by my staff and
